Sew Let's Quilt Along Announcement!

Do you remember when I joined a group of bloggers to do the "I Wish You a Merry Quilt Along?" That same group of bloggers did a Fall themed quilt along last year, and this year I'm excited to join them again for "Sew Let's Quilt Along!"

Sew Let's Quilt Along - a sewing and quilting themed quilt along

The theme for this year's quilt along is sewing and quilting!

So how does it work?

Every two weeks (starting in two weeks on March 12th!) a new FREE quilt block pattern will be released. This quilt along will have 13 blocks. You can join just a few of the blocks to make smaller projects like a table runner or wall hanging, or you can join all of the blocks to make a quilt!

This time around, one block will be 18" x 24", and the other 12 blocks will be 12" x 12". What do you think that larger block could be??

Why would I want to join?

There's a super friendly and supportive Facebook group that will be sewing along with you! The blocks will include different techniques and styles, so you can try new things on a small scale! And there are prizes!!

Tell me more about the prizes!

This time, we have divided all the blocks into groups or segments of just a few blocks. If you make all the blocks for that segment, then you'll be entered to win prizes for that segment. If you make all the blocks, then you'll be entered to win a fabulous grand prize package! (Prizes are open to international participants too!)

This sounds like so much fun! How do I join in?

Be sure to join the Facebook group! This is where you'll find the links to the patterns as soon as they are available.

When you make a block, be sure to post a photo in the Facebook group. If you use Instagram, you can also post your photo there with #SewLetsQAL.

While you're waiting for March 12th to get here, gather up some fabrics that you might want to include! The quilt along is a great way to use fabrics from your stash!

I do hope you'll quilt along with us!
